We didn't have hot water for a few days which they responded to but were unable to get working again. They were very helpful and attentive. The facility itself isn't too open more cramped with skinny hallways up and down. Most room are on the street so noisy at night but w the windows closed and AC on you can't hear it really. Ipanema is a bit far from things but great beaches.

Very cool hostel. A lot of people in a room, but this is normal in (expensive) Rio. The location is great: One block from the beach, bus stop around the corner and many bars, restaurants amd shops vlose by. Though its big you can still meet other people there. Wifi could be better

Location amazing, one block back from beach. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Wifi pretty bad. Also, very frustrating system to be let into your room, a swipe card for all doors might work better.

Absolutely loved staying at Che Lagarto in Ipanema, and the staff were outstanding: so kind, helpful, friendly- accommodating. will be back and definitely recommend to others !! Location was perfect! Parties that were arranged were pretty fun, always a cheery vibe. Felt my items were secure. make sure to bring a padlock and towel with you. they do not provide. Also recommend to book early for weekend if you know you will be staying, they book up fast.

Not the best hostel I stayed at, a few of the staff were great, but some of them are a bit lazy, and it just never had a hostel feel about it

The staff is just amazing, the location is excellent (only one block from Ipanema beach). The only problem that I've found was the card to open the door, which needed to be magnetised every entrance!

Good hostel in the good area of Ipanema. The buiding is a little old, but stay one block from the beach don't have price.

One of the best hostels I have stayed at in South America. Clean, helpful staff and the location is sensational, right in the middle of the beach and the main shopping strip. Showers were the best vid had at any hostel EVER!

Definitely this is one of the best hostels that I have already been and make sure staying in this hostel you will make the best choice in Rio. I would like to say many thanks for all support given by the staff during my stay in Rio and I hope to see you soon.

Sad, you can't choose "more than excelent" to rate the staff :) Wi-fi worked well in my room (102). The hostel has an incredible location, so even using taxis we didn't spend too much in transportation. The staff helped us in everything we needed and they are all very friendly 'n animated. A special hug to Caio, who has encouraged us to fly by asa delta. Another special hug to Agustin, who suggested us a great party to go. 'N finally a hug to Ricardo, who is always there to ask if we were ok :)

Nice friendly staff who are helpful and have a good vibe! Close to Ipanema beach and the shops. The bar is a good place to start the party.

Hmm this was not (by far) one of the best hostels we've stayed in! The staff were really friendly and the atmosphere at the bar was good. But the 10 person dorm had terrible air conditioning which barely worked let alone reached the beds far away from it. They say the bathroom is cleaned 3 times a day but it looked as if it was less than one, always unclean! Kitchen was small and only a tiny table to eat at unless you use the bar. Overall layout of the hostel isn't comfy.
